Day By Day Itinerary:
Day 1
Sunday, 4/8/2018 - Joshua Tree National Park
We set off from our departure points this morning for the Coachella Valley. We’ll make a rest stop at Hadley’s, famous for their breads, nuts and date shakes. Later this morning we arrive in Joshua Tree National Park. Viewed from the road, this desert park only hints at its vitality. Closer examination reveals a fascinating variety of plants and animals that make their home in this land shaped by strong winds, unpredictable torrents of rain, and climatic extremes. A rich cultural history and surreal geologic features add to the attraction of this place. With 700 species of plants, Joshua Tree is renowned for its plant diversity. No wonder that when the area was first proposed for preservation in the early 1930s, the name suggested was Desert Plants National Park. Enjoy an included picnic in the Park as well as a visit to the Visitors Center, a guided nature walk and a stop at Key’s View to marvel at the views of the Salton Sea and the San Andreas Fault. This evening we arrive at the deluxe Fantasy Springs Resort Casino offering non-stop gaming action, multiple restaurants and entertainment. 

Day 2
Monday, 4/9/2018 - Idyllwild
Following an included breakfast and the morning at leisure, we’ll depart the resort and head into the San Jacinto Mountains just southwest of Palm Springs. Here at 5,300 feet elevation nestled among tall pines, sweet smelling cedars and legendary rocks, is the  quaint alpine town of Idyllwild. This “small alpine village, big art town” has been named one of the ‘Top 100 Small Art Towns in America’. Enjoy time at leisure for lunch on your own and browsing the art galleries and shops filled with unique treasures of jewelry, glass, ceramics, crafts and paintings. Later this afternoon after a brief stop, we’ll return to our drop off points with the memories of our fabulous desert and mountain getaway not soon forgotten.
